Cornwall, N.Y. - Beginning on Tuesday, September 21 and Wednesday, September 22 the Hudson Highlands Nature Museum will offer an adventurous and fun six-week after-school program designed specifically for K-2nd graders. "Awesome and amazing" is how we like to describe incredible insects and their allies. Children will join Environmental Educator Carl Heitmuller to learn all about their habits and habitats plus meet some really cool giant insects and spiders. They will make a bug catcher and critter keeper from recycled materials. Everyone will be amazed by the many small creatures they will find when exploring the fields, wetlands and woods with Mr. Heitmuller at the Outdoor Discovery Center. This Pathfinders program will take place on six consecutive Tuesdays starting September 21 and September 22. The program will meet from 3:45 pm until 5 pm at the Outdoor Discovery Center, on Muser Drive, across from 174 Angola Road, Cornwall. Cost is $95. Museum Members: $80. Space is limited. Pre- paid registration required by calling 534-5506, ext. 204.
